ZOOM TIPS

John Bloom of HIFD has posted some good information on how to help better your virtual dance experience.

Also, the dance leaders would like to provide you with some ideas on how to have an easier time following us during our virtual dance sessions. For dances that move around a lot, try taking smaller steps and doing quick little pivots in place to face your screen again. Also, putting up a mirror opposite your monitor screen can assist you in viewing the dance leader while your back is to the screen.

A note about 2021 AIFD Membership

Note about 2021 AIFD Membership

The AIFD board has extended the term for current members to the end of 2021 due to the extraordinary conditions of the coronavirus pandemic. (Membership is January to December.) We look forward to dancing with everyone when this is over and want to make it easy and welcoming when we go back to dancing live. This means current members will not need to pay a fee for 2021 AIFD membership.

However, if you do want to pay for 2021 as we are a non-profit organization, you can email Marcia at treasurer@aifd.cc.

No changes to HRC.

No changes to Hancock Rec Center

Thanks to inquiries by Franklin Houston, we’ve been assured by Parks and Recreation that “The Hancock Recreation Center is independent of the golf course and will not be impacted in any of the current provided programs.”

There will be changes to the Hancock Golf Course which will allow the city to enter into a public-private partnership to improve the site into a modern golf learning center as part of a concession agreement with the City.

Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) had scheduled two meetings to solicit public input, on Oct 26 and 29, 2020. However, both have been postponed to future dates. Planning documents are here. (with the link to hancock-golf-course-planning )

The communication that Hancock Recreation Center will not be impacted in any of the current provided programs gives AIFD Board the confidence that we can go forward with our plans.

If you have questions please email the AIFD Board at board@aifd.cc.

Thank you and sometime we will dance again! Craig Roberts, president@aifd.cc.

(Psst .. want to play a round of golf or frisbee golf? Contact CraigR@computer-u.com)
